“Americana” photography show offers personal visions

“Pickup” is by Maria Dreyer.

The third annual Americana exhibition will open at the Pennsylvania Center for Photography on March 16, with a public reception from 6 to 8 p.m.

More than 225 photographs will be shown in a combination of a traditional print exhibition and large screen digital shows.

Americana is a juried exhibition that has dramatically grown each year and is now one of the Northeast’s largest photography shows with entries from 19 states and from as far away as Nairobi, Kenya.

The show represents the personal visions of America of more than 150 photographers, including a special presentation by members of the South Jersey Camera Club, which won this year’s Americana Camera Club Challenge. The exhibition incudes a diverse range of subjects, from rural and urban landscapes to portraits and protests to just about everything in-between.

The Pennsylvania Center for Photography is located at 181 E. Court St., Doylestown. Americana is free and will run from March 16 to April 8, with gallery hours on Fridays from 4 to 7 p.m., Saturdays from noon to 5 p.m., and Sundays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The exhibition will be closed on Easter Sunday.
